Reviews for Lemon-Pepper Chicken
"The lemon juice really stood out to us in this recipe. It was good, but I'm going to cut back on the lemon juice next time or use the juice of a real lemon."
"Absolutely delicious! I didnt have green onions so used yellow onions and still great.. cant imagine how good it should taste with the green onions. This one is a winner!"
